About the product
No server code. No API Keys. Just a feed of posts as JSON.
Facebook has made it a lot harder to fetch a simple feed of Instagram posts with their API. Especially for static/JAMstack sites. Behold takes care of all the annoying stuff so you can get building.
Other services offer rigid pre-built widgets that come with a bunch of css and JS and are a hassle to customize or integrate with a modern front-end stack. Behold is built for devs, and gives you direct access to the posts, so you can make what you want with them.
I don't use instagram myself but about... maybe 6 years ago I was doing a web site for a musician and he wanted his instagram feed incorporated. I thought it would be fine but it was a total pain in the ass.
Wish this existed then! Seems like a great product solving a real problem,

Thanks! Awesome to hear that. If you ever need it again I hope you'll give this a try! On an unrelated note: we share a first name. I've always gone by my middle name Griffin, but I'm really a Rufus, and there aren't a whole lot of us out there!
